As their story continues, Calvin and Caledonia find themselves madly in love, on the run, and nearly out of money. When Cal stumbles upon a way to cash in on Cali’s powers, their life on the road becomes a life of leisure. Despite the easy money and newfound luxury, Caledonia’s conscience begins to trouble her.
A disturbing warning only serves to confirm her misgivings, making her question her purpose in life. Finally, a shocking discovery about the true nature of her powers points the way forward, sending the two Cals on a dangerous rescue mission.
Caledonia tries her best to right the wrongs of the past, but will she only end up provoking new and even more dangerous enemies?
This book didn’t wow me like the first one did. I still liked it however, I love the story build up Ms. Anderson creates, and the character’s are fantastic.
Caledonia is a very strong character, she’s brave while also being naive in a lot of things still. Her love for Calvin is fantastic, though there tended to be a time or two that it was a little sugar coated for my taste, but it didn’t deter me from anything in the book, so it’s relatively a minor thing that I just shrugged off and kept on going.
I do enjoy the encounters with Calvin’s older brother Jared that always seems to be when the good parts really start to come in.
I’m definitely intrigued to see what happens in the next book, especially with the way this book had ended, it basically made me shudder at the grotesqueness of it, but at the same shudder with anticipation for the next book.
